This Week In Sports

Outdoor Facilities Update

As you may have heard, Phase 1 of the outdoor facilities project is nearly complete.  Despite a reasonable amount of uncertainty in the economic future of our nation, state, county, and local school district, we continue to maintain a very positive financial outlook.  For nearly two years, the NLSD Board of Education, administration, and a select committee developed a master facilities plan.  We developed a long-term master facilities plan to address our aging track, football field, lighting system, baseball fields, softball fields, parking areas and bus garage parking area. The overall feeling from these groups was that the facilities situation was not going to get any better, and without acting, we were limiting opportunities for our greatest asset-students! Failing to address the facilities need of the district will cost more each year we wait. Inflation, cost of building materials, labor costs, and other construction related costs continue to increase.  Regardless of timing, our students need better and safer facilities.  Overtime they will only become more unsafe, more overcrowded, and more inadequate each year.  

These upgrades are possible due to the sound fiscal management by the Northmor administration and BOE.  With over 6 million dollars projected in savings at the end of this school year, the BOE has decided to earmark 2.7 million dollars of this money to upgrade the site improvements.  There will be NO NEW TAXES to the Northmor taxpayers to provide funds for these improvements as the money is already in the savings account to pay for the upgrades!  The BOE has decided rather than pay for the entire project from the savings account the district entered into a lease purchase agreement for the funds to pay for this project over the next ten years with the money that is currently in the savings account earmarked for the project to cover the annual installment payments. This savings account is separate from general fund operations.

The BOE and District administration feel that these improvements are long overdue and will greatly enhance the campus and educational atmosphere here at Northmor Local Schools for many, many years to come.  They will provide the latest and most up-to-date facilities for our students, staff, and community.  Our community deserves the best and we are more than happy to be able to provide this wonderful opportunity with NO ADDITIONAL cost to our constituents. Furthermore, if you ever have questions or need clarification regarding any questions with the outdoor project or district finances do not hesitate to contact District Treasurer, Gina Deppert or myself at the Board of Education Office. We are here to assist you in any way possible.

Sincerely,

Chad A. Redmon

20-21 Student Forms

Dear Parents/Guardians,

FinalForms is now open for the 2020-2021 school year. Please log in at your convenience and review your student’s forms. FinalForms saves data entered from last school year so you only need to make changes as needed and electronically sign the forms. Select any sport or extracurricular activity that your student is interested in for the entire school year. Students in grades 7-12 must also log into FinalForms and sign forms as needed.

Parents of Students Entering Grades 7-12: When filling out FinalForms, you will need to enter your student's email address so the student can sign the forms. You will need to enter their personal email address or look up how to use their wireless phone number as an email address (Northmor’s student knightpride email is turned off during the summer.) 

Thank you for your assistance in streamlining our paperwork processes and saving resources at Northmor Local School District.

Outdoor Facilities Project

Phase One of the Northmor Outdoor Facilities project is underway!  This is an exciting opportunity for past, current, and future Golden Knights that will create a positive educational and athletic experience for the foreseeable future.  During this time of construction, we ask that you refrain using the track, football field and bus garage area as this is problematic for the workers and creates a safety issue for all.
Board Approves Facilities Upgrade
After several years of dialogue regarding the safety, condition, and overall appearance of our outdoor athletic complex, the Northmor Board of Education, Superintendent, and Treasurer are moving forward with the renovation, building, and updating of these facilities.

These upgrades are possible due to the sound fiscal management by the Northmor administration and BOE.  With over 6 million dollars projected in savings at the end of this school year, the BOE has decided to earmark 2.7 million dollars of this money to upgrade the site improvements as detailed on the campus map.  There will be NO NEW TAXES to the Northmor taxpayers to provide funds for these improvements as the money is already in the savings account to pay for the upgrades!  The BOE has decided rather than pay for the entire project from the savings account the District will enter into a lease purchase agreement for the funds and pay for this project over the next ten years with the money that is currently in the savings account earmarked for the project to cover the annual installment payments.

The BOE and District administration feel that these improvements are long overdue and will greatly enhance the campus and educational atmosphere here at Northmor Local School District for many, many years to come.  They will provide the latest and most up-to-date facilities for our students, staff, and community.  Our community deserves the best and we are more than happy to be able to provide this wonderful opportunity with NO ADDITIONAL cost to our constituents.

Go, Golden Knights!
